Mackay Sunrise Rotary Club is situated in Mackay – Central Queensland (Just South of the incredible Whitsunday Islands and East of the enchanting Pioneer Valley and Eungella National Park)
A vibrant region of Australia, where coal, sugar and tourism are the regions major industries.

Chartered in 1992 we have 16 members that meet every Friday for breakfast, at the beautiful Ocean International Hotel.

We think it’s the best club in Mackay if you are a busy person that wants to get involved with Rotary and don’t have time to attend lunch or evening meetings, and wants to give back to the local community

Our biggest fundraiser is the annual Mayor’s Charity Ball held in May. It’s raised over $600,000 since it was first held in 2004

We belong to Rotary District 9570 which consists of 49 clubs and approximately 1,000 members, covering an area of 600,000 square kilometres.

Visiting Rotarians are always welcome – check out the visitors info here

Our club has raised over a $1 Million in it’s first 25 years and we are proud to say that the vast majority of the funds raised have been spent in Mackay helping needy individuals, organisations and projects.

In that time we have had a lot of fun and developed warm honest and sincere relationships amongst club members and our local community.

The club is now looking for new enthusiastic members for the next 25 years of our journey.

Come along and enjoy a meeting on us, come to a few social events as well and see what really happens in Rotary.

We’d love to meet you and will enjoy becoming friends with you as we have fun raising money for people that are less fortunate than us.

Email us today and we’ll be only too glad to organise a meeting for you to attend.

No Time To Die helped drive strong total admission figures across the weekend with 873,000 Aussies in total visiting the cinemas this weekend. This is almost 30 percent higher than the previous weekend and the strongest weekend since July this year. The box office smash hit brought in a massive $11.2m in its first four days at the Australian box office. Guy Burbidge Managing Director of Val Morgan, said: “We’re thrilled to see Bond: No Time To Die deliver strong audience results in true 007 style.” “In the wake of restrictions finally lifting across the entire nation, Australians are officially returning to the biggest screen of all, with admit figures sitting strong, up almost 30% on last weekend’s result, and well above the same weekend in 2019. “It’s clear that there is no loss of appetite for the cinema as high-value audiences have rushed back to see a true cultural media moment that is Bond.” The success of the new Bond flick is expected to ripple into the coming months with more major titles hitting cinema soon. Dune, The Matrix: Resurrections, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Spider- Man No Way Home, and many more long awaited movies will hit Aussie cinema’s soon.
